Re: Seward Co-op Friendship Store - (38th St & Clinton Ave)

It will certainly be nice to have a co-op in South, we alternate between Seward and Target (66th st) for groceries for the same general reasons as mattaudio, with emergency runs to Bergen's to supplement. This new co-op will be a lot closer to our house and on the way home from work, making it much ...

Re: Urban/Suburban Lifestyle

That article retty much nailed a lot of the reasons we just sold our house in Hugo (north surburb/exurb) and bought a house in South Minneapolis. We were driving everywhere we wanted to go and the only business within 1.5 miles was a garden center. Before we had to drive a mile before we got out of ...

Re: Vikings Stadium

At the risk of sounding radical and absurd, what do people think about retiring this thread and starting a new one that can focus purely on the now-under-construction building? This thread is so long that most of the posts are now obsolete, and starting from scratch might allow us to set a preceden...

Re: 26th / 28th Streets in South Minneapolis

I drive on 26th quite a bit to zip across south minneapolis or avoid I94, the lights are timed quite well between Portland and Hennepin (except for lyndale) and its usually not too congested in the mornings. I'd favor leaving it as it is

Re: Opus Dinkytown Project - (14th Avenue SE & 5th Street SE

From the StarTribune story:
Supporters of the project held signs like: "Don’t let scare tactics stop quality redevelopment of blighted parking lot. Approve this project!!”
Does this apply to anyone from here? :)

Re: Southwest Corridor (Green Line Extension)

One of the mayoral candidates supports running the 3C alignment: “The cost assumptions that under-girded that analysis are no longer valid,” he said. He later added: “The path that we’re going down now leads to no project, leads to no train.” Winton said Minneapolis and its suburban neighbor are in ...

Re: Southwest Corridor (Green Line Extension)

With costs escalating for a lot of the preferred options, anyone remember how much the Uptown options were? Is it even close to the price of the preferred routes?

Re: LPM Apartments - (1368 LaSalle Avenue)

This is truly the jewel of new development, and it is exciting to some degree that buildings such as Nic on 5th and 4Marq are being built (much rather them be built than not) - but it is somewhat sad that this is in reality the only development we have going which will make a significant impact on ...
